The Hickory branch of Trout Unlimited will gather April 16 at the Market on Main Cellar on First Avenue SW in Hickory.
here is an optional $10 buffet at 5:30 p.m. followed by the meeting at 6:30 p.m.
The meeting is open to the public and veterans are especially welcome to learn more about the benefits of fly fishing.
According to Ed Nicholson, Founder of Project Healing Waters, “The act of fly fishing and fly tying helps disabled veterans to rebuild their fine motor skills and improve balance while in a relaxed outdoor setting other than in a hospital, thereby enhancing their overall rehabilitation.” Eagle Rock Camp takes the healing process a step further by bringing military families together to heal, reconnect in their communities, restore their hope and emerge as an empowered, purpose driven unit. Trout Unlimited supports both of these programs. Lynn Marilla, NC Trout Unlimited Veteran Service Partnership Coordinator, will discuss these programs and the benefits for those who attend.
